Last month, Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak estimated that Apple spends about $1 billion a year on AWS. Nowak believes that Apple was planning on cutting those costs with AWS sooner or later at it builds new data centers. Besides iCloud, Apple runs huge data centers for iTunes and the App Store.
This win is especially impressive given Google and Apple's cantankerous history over the mobile computing market the past few years.This is Greene's second big score: Spotify also announced that it's moving from Amazon to Google last month. (Meanwhile, Amazon also recently lost Dropbox as a customer, reports Wired, but Dropbox didn't move to Google. It's grown big enough to build and run its own data centers.)
So Google is working hard to shrug off its status as the No. 3 cloud vendor, behind Amazon and Microsoft.
Top Google cloud executive Urs Hölzle says that by 2020, Google could be making more money from cloud computing services than it does from advertising.Google could not be immediately reached for comment.
